An extreme sports park with a 15-story hotel that would be built south of the Strip received county approvals Wednesday.

Clark County commissioners voted 7-0 to approve plans for the 130-acre project at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sunset Road, according to county spokesman Dan Kulin.

The project site is across the street from open-air mall Town Square in one direction and McCarran International Airport runways in the other.

Plans call for a man-made white-water rapids lake, three cable wakeboarding lakes, an indoor mountain biking track, an indoor skydiving attraction and a pool with water slides and “dunk tank towers.”

It also would feature an activity tower with rock climbing and bungee jumping, zip coasters throughout the park and a 640-room hotel-casino with convention space, restaurants and two rooftop swimming pools, county documents show.

Its developer, Australian native Josh Kearney, told the Review-Journal in January that the project’s total price was probably $800 million and would be called The Edge.

Kearney on Wednesday declined to discuss the construction timeline, noting he just received his entitlements.

But he said that he received Federal Aviation Administration approvals within the past few weeks, allowing the project to go before county commissioners.
